Now a veterinarian who has the same horse-whispering gift as her father, Anne Foster returns to the horse country of Virginia, where she discovers that dealing with humans is an entirely different challenge. In That Summer, Joan Wolf's bittersweet novel of homecoming, Anne faces unfinished relationships and unsolved mysteries revolving around Liam Wellington, the man she's never stopped loving, and the puzzling disappearance of Leslie Bartholomew. When Leslie's body is discovered after 10 long years, Liam is again the chief suspect in her murder. Believing in Liam requires a woman's love, and Anne comes face to face with old demons she fled from a decade before. Wolf gets inside Anne's psyche with a tender understanding that makes this tale of second chances resonate with hope and promise.
